In the summer, skin and hair usually have an inverse relationship: skin becomes darker and hair becomes lighter . Although this has been a trend in the past, why not try something new? Rethink your typical summer hair and have some fun.
Embrace your roots and take advantage of the ombre trend. This hair color features dark roots with highlights that start small and gradually get larger around the face and near the ends of the hair. The best part about this sun-bleached look is that it works with any hair color, so work with what you have.
Blond bombshells are always in style, but now is your chance to amp up your light hair. Trade golden blond locks for a confident platinum, and get ready to turn some heads. Platinum is a major trend for summer, but make sure you're ready to commit. If you're going more than a few shades lighter than your natural hair color, the upkeep could end up burning through your summer funds.
Bring red locks to a whole new dimension, literally. Follow the lead of many Hollywood starlets and make sure your red hair doesn't look flat. Instead of using one color, ask your hairdresser to use subtle lowlights and highlights to give your tresses some depth. Keep in mind that red hair should complement your skin tone, and if you're going for a more natural look, stay away from vibrant shades of red.
If you're dreaming of being a brunette, try a fawn shade of brown. This light brown shade resides somewhere between blonde and brunette, and should be tweaked according to your eye and skin color. If you're looking for something darker, mix and match a few trends by adding a hint of auburn to your brunette tresses. For a dramatic impact, try a deep shade of chestnut brown, but stick to one color.
